WordPress fix for: Post Title is overlapping the category list


Just wanted to post a WordPress style workaround I’ve found for a WordPress problem I’ve struggled with for some time here and at the Airport Directory QuickAid.com.

I’m using INOVE so maybe it’s particular to that theme.

The Problem:   Post Title is overlapping the category list when you have more than a few categories listed above the post.

The Solution lies in changing the file style.css  (which you access from your control panel / appearance / themes)

Look for this:
#postpath {
background:url(img/icons.gif) 0 -208px no-repeat;
height:16px;
line-height:16px;
margin:16px 0;
padding-left:22px;

CHANGE this         margin:16px o; to this:           margin:32px o;

It worked for me and gave the needed extra spacing for all the categories.    This is a problem that seems to be from having a lot of WordPress post categories.

Thanks to the Ben the Wonder Boy for helping figure this out.

  1. I changed it to 32 also wanted to change line-height but it disturb the page.. but when I only change line-height without chaging margin it works fine… whats the matter 😦
